Cute Crazy Cousins

Holidays are still going strong for my house....and I am LOVING the sleeping in! Yesterday we went on a family sleigh ride - it was SO fun! The rest of the week is supposed to be COLD so I am ready to hunker down and scrapbook...I am suffering serious withdrawal!!

I did this layout awhile ago, but forgot to post it! My girls were sad to not be with their cousins this year for Christmas - they always have so much fun together! This layout has Sienna and Noah...love how they would give me smiles and then goofy faces, smiles and then more goofy faces...ahhh four year olds....so adorable!!

Merry Christmas!!!!!!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!!! We are having a wonderful day with family and I hope are too!!! I don't have a family picture to share yet, but all I asked for this Christmas was everyone to sit down and take a family pic! Crossing my fingers.... Here is one of Sienna...she is home with me most days and is always willing to pose for the camera:-)

Have a wonderful day!!

Each month, on the 15th, over at Art Freckles, there is a "try this" idea on the blog. It was my turn this month and here is my post:

I just LOVE these paper stars and this year, I decided to make a bunch to decorate my mantle. They look amazing! And the best part? They are so quick and easy to make!
I used a template found HERE.
1) First you just print them out onto the backside of your paper.
2) You will need to print and cut out 5 pieces in total.
3) The template shows you where to fold.
4) Fold and then glue the edge. Do this with all five pieces.
5) Glue the five pieces together to make your star.
Super easy so try one today! I used the Teresa Collins music paper found in this month's kit and you can pick up a kit HERE.

Art Freckles Holiday Hostess Gifts Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Art Freckles Hostess Gifts Blog Hop! I am the last stop on the hop and you should be arriving from Shannon's Blog. If you want to start at the beginning...head to the ART FRECKLES blog.

This is such a wonderful time of the year to get together with family and friends and it always nice to bring a little something along for the host. So for my project, I made this cute paper bag that you could fill with anything. Mine will be filled with some delicious holiday baking (as soon as I do some holiday baking...the earlier I do it...the more I eat...lol). I also made this coordinating card. Cindy Liebel did a tutorial on paper wreaths here (she is so amazing) so I gave it a whirl miniature style for my card.

BUT..after I finished my card, I decided that the wreath would make a beautiful ornament. So I attached a gem with some wire and VOILA.

The gorgeous papers used in my project are from the NOEL collection by Teresa Collins as well as the gem from her BLINGAGE collection. The December Tinsel Town kit from Art Freckles is filled with Teresa Collins goodies and is only $25 Canadian so be sure to stop by and pick one up before they are all gone...

Thank-you so much for stopping by! Have a WONDERFUL day!!

Art Freckles December Kit

'Tis the season to be jolly.....and this month's kit from Art Freckles sure makes me jolly!! It is filled with amazing product from Teresa Collin's Noel line. And you KNOW that I LOVE Teresa Collins!!!!!

The kit comes with this gorgeous tinsel garland and it immediately made me think of decorating the tree so... I decorated a little paper tree with it! This layout documents how Sienna loves to play with the ornaments as she hangs them up. She spent about two hours playing with them before they actually all got on the tree! I remember doing the same thing when I was little:-)
